Strategy and Tactics
This spider excels at taking out fast units, a problem for the spider factory in general. Like most of the spiders, the Redback can be merged with Recluses and turned into a hard-to beat combo, as raiders will have a problem closing the distance. Its somewhat high range for a riot allows for some kiting, and is very hard to engage with short ranged units. It also has the highest DPS, which makes constantly strafing the enemy a good idea, as it allows the Redback to deal more damage. Powerful vs Gunships as well.
Keep away from skirmishers/artillery.
The spider is tall enough to shoot over each other, and it is much stronger if it is in groups.
